to steve schmidt, who's a senior adviser to the mccain/palin campaign in 2008. watching this as a republican, steve, i will just say in the room here us all watching together we were all much more riveted than we were last week during the presidential debate. what's your overall reaction with how the guys kid tonigdid ? >> it's a fiery debate. i can't remember a debate that's been as fiery as this one at this level. i think republicans will watch this. they will say paul ryan won. >> really? >> they'll be happy with this performance. i think democrats who watched this will be fired up about joe biden's performance. i think he did what he needed to do tonight which is to calm some of the panic in the democratic base by having a fiery performance. but i also think this -- his smiling, the laughing, the grinning, if you look at the recent history of debates, whether it's al gore sighing, president george herbert walker bush looking at his watch, so many of these debates have come to be dominated by these personality quirks that manifested themselves over the course of the d
on international policy attitudes and i would like to recognize steve coll who is with us today. his research partner in this effort decided that they wanted come after the embassy attacks, to dig in to where the american public is on these questions today. how they are struggling to interpret the events in the middle east. in light of the attacks but beyond the embassy attacks themselves. and so, shibley will be providing a steady with an overview of the results of their work. a new poll that was conducted just a week and a half ago, less. so it's extremely fresh public opinion data. we are going to take that data analysis and add to it some come textual analysis from some very seasoned observers, william galston of the government share of studies here at the brookings institution, seasoned observer of american politics and culture and also a thoughtful scholar on issues of religion and culture and politics and hisham melhem, the washington bureau chief for al arabiya, a seasoned observer of arab politics. with these two gentlemen as our assistance today, we will be able to take a broad look
in light of what was the last week in denver? >> steve, i think he touched on the biggest reason why this debate could be more important than these under cards typically are. that is because there is pressure on joe biden to stand and deliver, and to change the narrative from what we've had the last few days. which is a fact given president obama's weak performance in denver, that mitt romney for the first time it seemed a real bump in the polls, and in some states is polling narrowly ahead. so i think biden will try to turn that around, put paul ryan and the gop ticket back on the defensive and at the same time the burden is on trying to keep the mojo going, keep romney's sort of balance here a life released a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. so i think that's the biggest reason why this thing matters. also one important point and that is this is one of the first perhaps the only campaign where one side is really campaigning against the policies of the other parties vice president as much as they're running against the other party's preside
asking what you would ask. steve says he would ask representative rye and about health care. ed says in relation to libya he said, why should any american vote for an administration whose present exhibits incompetence? the presidential candidate hitting the road today. obama leaving washington shortly for florida, a couple of events today. mitt romney is in north carolina and he will have a rally this afternoon at the u.s. cellular center in asheville. here on c-span, at 1:00, live to the national press club for the "ms" magazine celebration. up next, thomas donohue and business roundtable president and former michigan per governors talk about how the policies of both candidates might impact business and growth. this was hosted by that speaker agency leading authority. we will show you what we can until the advent gets underway. [applause] thank you for turning out here on this cold, wintry morning in washington, d.c.. it is now four weeks until america goes to the polls, and it could not be a better time to have this conversation about what is the single biggest issue in this campai
'll simply say this. i respectfully disagree with the vice president. >> steve king i ryan's long time supporter and friend. >> he's going to treat joe biden no different than he treats a person in a town hall. >> the the difference is that biden is going to be -- on him. >> he'd be tougher, but can't be any tougher than somebody screaming or hollering at him in a town hall. >> i'll debate these points anytime with you. just call me. my number's 262 -- >> if you're yelling, i want to ask you to leave. if you're just going to scream out like that, it's just not polite to everybody. >> still, ryan's brother says this process has been a difficult transition. >> he writes his own things. he's probably having more help now that he's not used to. >> far different from tobin ryan's early experience helping his 28-year-old brother prepare for this. his first congressional campaign debate. >> we had about you know, eight sheets of one sided paper that listed out issues and you didn't really have to prepare paul. you know, this is a guy that does more in a day, absorbs more in a day than i think
go back further. we look at steve camp or jack kemp. in 96, did he drown out voters? no, he may spending his own money, all you could do at that time on his own campaign made it more possible that bob dole might do so that other gop candidates in the race got heard from. everybody did. we go back to the last election before the passage of the campaign act of 1968. mccarthy got his campaign running in a weakened because a bunch of people given 10 million bucks, which you can't do. did that drown people out or did that make to that drown people out or did that make >> well, clearly, no lack of disagreement on >> well, clearly, no lack of disagreement on this panel. i do want to go back to you, ken. you've been looking not tracking the money. in addition to these questions of how much influence individuals have come and there's so question of what the state of play. one of the thinkers interested in a something you wrote about, that george soros warned the bible or virtual bible that he wouldn't donate to the super pac and he decided to. so what do you think is changing, kim, in th
